I’m supposed to have my first lesson tomorrow (depending on snowstorm or not) on a gentle giant/Percheron/Appy….having last been on a horse 28 years ago. My bottle of ibuprofen is already in my pocket! My husband is going to be there filming…not sure if that’s a good thing…we’ll see.
Thanks! I'm excited to know you read my blog!

Best of luck with your first lesson, can't wait to hear how it goes!!

Country Woman, likewise I am looking forward to following your story as well and hope you are successful in selling your lovely creations. It’s just a matter of getting your work out there for people to see and I bet it will take right off!

Checked out another boy today - very nice guy, had a canter I could hardly sit it was so huge! Not sure if he's the one for me though, he has an issue with his foot, and I just don't know enough to know if its something that will heal soon.

But, great day anyways, as hubby purchased me a trailer! (details in my blog :) I'm so thrilled, no more worries on how we're getting to the shows...and its a three horse, so my barn friends will also ride along with us!

When god created wives he said to all men, good wives will be found at all the corners of the earth.

Then he made the earth round.

There you go Stan, I never made it to being a wife - the wife part never put me off - the 'house' put in front of the wife did!

I have bookmarked your blog and will read it later.

{chuckle} I was thinking more about their digestion, hooves and tendons, etc.

Lostinthewoods, hope you have a great time at your first lesson. A sweet appy-percheron cross sounds like someone I'd love. Don't get discouraged by how much you need to learn. If you keep plugging at it, your muscles get stronger and the pieces start to fall together.

Just finished soaking Ri's hoove and then treating all four for thrush. It's RAiNING! I know, shocking. Made a deal with husband, he is going take big boy to the tutor and pick up hay while I go to the grocery store. Somehow... I think he got the better end of the deal....

Oh... and in exchange for a steak dinner... I have to go see that navy seal movie. :(
